HOT FOR THE HOLIDAYS!










so i took my son to Ohio over Thanksgiving. it was good. there is a deep pleasure in taking a City Kid out to the woods, prying him away from the goddam Cathode Ray Babysitter and into a real backyard with bugs, frogs and trees. the weather was t-shirt warm, so much cowboys-&-indian-ings/kicking the soccer ball around ensued.

and at night...the stars came out. and the lights turned on:


BLOSSOM HOLIDAY LIGHTING FESTIVAL, CUYAHOGA FALLS, OH

The Blossom Music Center is opening up its grounds to the public for the first time this winter. Sprawled across Blossom's grounds, the festival features a 2-mile drive-through of more than 300 displays. Dates and hours: Beginning Nov. 16, the festival will be open 6- 9p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 6-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. It costs $12.50 per carload; $25 for shuttles; and $50 for buses.

NP: Don Dixon and i have decided to take Pere Ubu 's David Thomas' great quote about there being "way to much music in the world. the best thing that musicians can do is to stop making it...NOW!" to heart, and we have declared 2007 to be The Year of the Loaf. no recording...period, and we urge everyone else to join us. no more music making until that huge pile in the corner gets listened to vs. added to. time to catch up....so please don't record anything new. thank you.

we mean this:








a meatloaf...

not this:









Mr. Loaf...



PEEVE DE JOUR: Blue Cross/Blue Shield not only lost my check, but never issued a new one for Dr. Rotator Cuff. they also seemed to have not processed my pre-cert for Dr. Bladder-Poker. man, do they suck or what?...and all for only $1k a month, and 35 minutes of attitude from the phone 'service provider'. re; medical care in the USA...in any other country, there would be rioting in the streets...

JOIE DE JOUR: listening to Trey Kay make radio. wow...cat is GOOD!
